We have lost a man of tremendous value and courage, Splitting The Sky, John Boncore, stood up relentlessly for social justice, human rights and truth in media.
We recall his historical citizen’s arrest of war criminal George W. Bush, when he visited Canada a few years ago.
Splitting the Sky’s legacy is incalculable.
He taught us the true meaning of activism.
Splitting the Sky will be with us for ever.
He will be remembered by all of us at Global Research.

Mohawk Warrior and Champion of the People Dies – March 13, 2013. A great loss to the people, to the nation, to the resistance, anti-imperialist movement right across Great Turtle Island.
On March 13th, Dacajeweiah, Splitting-the-Sky, 61, left us forever when he passed away in his home in Adams Lake, British Columbia. Dac’s colonial name was John Boncore Hill, from Six Nations. “From Attica to Gustafsen Lake,” and thereafter, he was a warrior, a comrade, a brother, a father, a grandfather, a friend.
We deeply mourn his loss.
The family will release a biographical statement and details of memorial arrangements in due course. With deepest love to his wife, She-Keeps-the-Door, and children. We stand with Dac’s many many co-fighters and friends. He loved the People. The AIM song is dedicated to the continuance of the resistance after a warrior has fallen A.I.M. song
